Metropolitan Fine Arts and Antiques located at 10 West 57th St, is has acquired an exquisite handmade Sterling Silver Mongolian Tea Set

Metropolitan Antiques and Fine Arts is announcing to the public their acquisition of a very rare Silver Mongolian Tea Set. This piece just shows another fine example of the magnificent antiques Metro Antiques pursues with vigor to offer their large customer base.

Samuel Morano, co-owner of Metropolitan Antiques explained that the Mongolians were some of the original tea drinkers. Mongolian rulers would give tea and tea sets to Russian leaders in the 17th century.

The set that Metropolitan Fine Arts and Antiques acquired is very rare and in the finest condition.

As we gazed upon the tea set that is displayed with pride at the store on West 57th Street, Irving Morano greeted us with the Mongolian customary “Sain bain uu?”, which means, “Are you well?” Not knowing the answer, Irv provided the answer, “You should answer with Sain, which means well, even if you are not well. With the smile on Irv’s face, I could tell he was quite Sain. I believe the gleam off the Mongolian Tea Set provided the owners of Metro Antiques with much joy.

Metropolitan Antiques and Fine Arts is well known for gaining antiques no other antique stores can.
